Special Issue – “Possibilities and complexities of decolonising higher education: critical perspectives on praxis”

We are very pleased at the publication of this double-length special issue in Teaching in Higher Education. In the original call for papers, we claimed that, despite high levels of interest in the ‘decolonial turn’, little has been written in higher education journals on how and to what extent the supremacy of Western modernity is actually being challenged in knowledge production in different disciplines, curricula, pedagogic, cultural and linguistic practices on the ground in university policy and practice.  We were proved wrong, for we were overwhelmed by well over a hundred responses to our call –…

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Is Neither Car Or Truck- But It Is Cool

The Carpages Garage has had the privilege of playing host to some pretty spectacular cars over the last several months. Highlights? Well, the absolutely mental Porsche Taycan Turbo S certainly left its mark, and the Honda Civic Type R is always a hoot. The Mercedes Maybach GLS 600 was decadent luxury on a scale for which the likes had previously gone unseen to us, and the BMW M5 Competition still makes a convincing case for itself as the best sports sedan money can buy. All have been memorable in their…

Xiaomi 12 Pro torn down and reassembled on video

Xiaomi recently unveiled the 12 and 12 Pro in China with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipsets and the new flagship is featured in a teardown video posted by WekiHome on YouTube. The teardown reveals that the 12 Pro’s build is very much “glass sandwich” structurally. After breaking through the adhesive seal around the rear panel of the glass, we can see the layout of a main board and camera cluster towards the top, battery in the center, and the daughterboard at the bottom housing the charging part, speakers, and haptic motor. Many of the connectors, modules,…

Skull Island – a Headhunter Confronter!

Here’s something a bit out there that’s a tad spooky, freakish and a little macabre. However, it’s worth a look to see how things were done in the past. It’s a place called Skull Island – and you’ll see the rather obvious name in the photos below. And I’m not talking about the King Kong movie either! It’s a shrine to historical events that are now long gone and (thankfully) not coming back! Anyway, if you’re staying at Munda in the New Georgia region in the Western Province of the Solomon Islands, you’re…

Now, 100 years after the AVUS was opened, new life is being breathed into the renovated…

How to write a car review

So, back to my first blog! And what kind of review site would this be, if my first blog was about anything other than “how to write a car review”. Since we launched back in March I have been asked this question over and over. Many people have shied away from reviewing their past or current cars  because they:  1. Don’t have enough time  2. Don’t know where to start 3. Don’t know what to write Don’t get me wrong, these are all great reasons to not write a review,…
